Request for Proposals - 2018 AHTA Conference

Planting with a Purpose: Engaging in Horticultural Therapy
A request for proposals to present at the
46th American Horticultural Therapy Association Annual Conference

As horticultural therapists and allied health practitioners, we understand the importance of networking with our peers and sharing our ideas, successes, and experiences. Connecting with people from diverse backgrounds, regions, countries, and organizations is key to life-long learning and growing in the field of horticultural therapy. Digging deeper into our profession, learning new and innovative ways to deliver our services, getting our hands dirty, and demonstrating what drives our passion for horticultural therapy are the goals of this year’s AHTA Annual Conference in the nature-rich region of Denver, Colorado.

In this spirit, AHTA is accepting session submissions in the following areas:

  • Successful programs designed for underserved populations
  • Innovative treatment interventions using plants, natural materials, other meaningful ingredients
  • Activities and projects that meet the needs of specific populations
  • Expertise, experience, and explanation about conducting research and getting published
  • Genesis of a successful horticultural therapy program
  • Discussion groups for practitioners working with similar populations to share challenges, successes, and hopes
  • Serving the community through outreach-based horticultural therapy programs
  • Funding resources, grant writing, and other sustainable measures to maintain program financial resources 

Presenters will be selected from proposals submitted in response to this request for proposals by a peer review panel. Please submit your proposal online by April 17, 2018. Notification of decisions will be sent by May 11, 2018.
